Magnolia Bakery

Magnolia

Delicious, creamy and worth every calorie are what comes to mind when I think of the savory desserts we discovered yesterday at Magnolia Bakery at ABC Dbayeh. Not to mention mouthwatering and utterly delightful to look at. Staring at the display of cookies, cupcakes, pies and cakes was like going through a museum where you are in utter awe of how something can look so good!  We ended up settling for the Chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream which was a generous portion of fluffy chocolate cake with the creamiest frosting I have ever tasted.

For all you sweets lovers, DO NOT miss this spot!  And if you aren’t really a sweets person, they have delicious menu for lunch and dinner as well.  But good luck passing up the sweets they have on display!  Prices range from 2,000LL for a cookie to 12,000LL for a miniature pie but portions are quite generous.

Bridesmaidzilla in Beirut

SliceBridesmaids
My sister is getting married in a month! I’m super excited but in a frenzy to become to the perfect Maid of Honor. That translates into losing about 5 kilos (thanks to all the delicious sausages and pretzels on my trip to Germany last week), finding the perfect dress, planning an unforgettable bachelorette party, choosing the perfect wedding gift for my baby sister and finding a reasonable explanation of why I’m still not married for the 200 guests who I’m sure will be asking (lol)!

I’ll be keeping you up to date with my progress and look forward to all the help I can get from all of you 🙂

Wish me Luck!!

Walk on the Marina

I just love Beirut on a cloudy day!  The colors are more vivid, the air is fresh and the view can be seen for miles.   For all of you who like to appreciate a good view, I suggest you try a walk on the boardwalk outside of Marina Dbayeh.  Just take the bridge before ABC Dbayeh and park your car anywhere on the boardwalk.

You get the view of the sea, the mountains and beautiful Beirut from a distance.  You can watch the Marina Waterfront Complex come to life. Plus it’s free!

Hello Beirut!

keep-calm-and-blog-on-104

It’s been a while!  I took some time off from the blogosphere and the Beirutosphere due to my hectic schedule in the last year.  But oh how I miss it.  It’s amazing how much can change in a year – on a technological and social level!  Social media has a whole new dimension and so does Social Lebanon.  New restaurants, activities, areas of action and shopping centers.  Got myself a new Canon and I’m ready to dive back in.

I’ll be updating the blog, adding some new features and starting the new Shop Talk Facebook page.  As always, I welcome all your thoughts, ideas and suggestions.

Hope you’re all having a great year!

Help Zee Get to NYC

It’s such a pleasure to watch Lebanese students pursue their dreams!  Meet Zeina, an AUB graduate and fellow blogger who has found her passion in creative writing.  She took a shot to apply to her favored program in New York. 

The good news is SHE GOT ACCEPTED!

The bad news is PROBABLY THE ONLY THING SHE CAN COVER IS THE PLANE TICKET!

The best news is SHE’S GOT THE WILL TO USE ALL HER MEANS TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL!

That’s definitly news worth supporting.  For any of you interested in learning more about Zeina and her dream and helping her by supporting with whatever you can, even if its just $5, every additional push gets her a step closer.

Shakespeare & Co Cafe

One of my favorite cafes from Dubai has finally arrived in Lebanon.  Shakespeare & Co is a cozy cafe which combines old style European chic with a delicious and diverse modern menu.   Shisha is available as well for anyone interested.  This is a cafe worth visiting whenever you’re in the Dbayeh area.  P.s. The Beef Tenderloin and Bread & Butter Pudding are delicious!!!
